OVERVIEW

Lightweight and affordable active PA speakers.

The Truesonic TS2 product range is the result of a clean-sheet approach to designing professional speakers that strike an ideal balance between no-compromise acoustic performance, the complete array of features that users demand and outstanding ergonomics and utility—all coupled with a stunning new industrial design.

The range consists of three models, the TS210, TS212 and TS215. The amplifiers in all three are rated at 550 watts continuous, 1100 watts peak—a significant increase over the previous line. This higher power capability ensures greater output for use in larger spaces, with increased clarity, since the amplifiers won’t “run out of steam” and distort the way less powerful units will.

The all-new industrial design is more than just beautiful: The TS212 and TS215 have five integrated handles and the TS210 has two, making them easy to pick up in either H or V orientation. Each model also employs professional-grade M10 rigging/suspension points. The tough, durable cabinets have excellent acoustic properties, while their light weight makes them easy to transport.

Because of their cutting-edge, high-efficiency amplifiers, these speakers run at far lower temperatures than conventional amplifiers, even during extended periods of high output. The ground-up design effort for these speakers enabled us to incorporate advanced amplifiers with superior heat-dissipation characteristics, eliminating the need for costly, noisy cooling fans. The result is a powered speaker system that is cleaner, quieter and more reliable.

    Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

    I've tried every kind of speaker in this price range, and NONE even come close to the Truesonic's clarity, punch, and great overall sound. Nice, evenly matched speakers, ground lift, even a control to add a little more punch if you need it. We use these as monitors, and the 15" model for our mains. These can easily handle use as mains... LOVE how portable they are!

    New design looks great. Also like the number and locations of handles on the new models. I liked the old models a lot, but these are even better. Don't mess with the other brands... just buy these.

        Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

        I am neither a musician or Professional DJ. Lets just call me an audio "enthusiast". I have a rather large property, and i was looking for a simple setup that i could put in the garage, and possibly carry out to the yard. After auditioning several PA speakers in this price range, it was pretty clear that these sounded the best to me. They were the least harsh at moderate volume levels. All speakers in this price range seemed to have similar bass volume levels, but these sounded like they had better low frequency control so they didnt sound distorted or over-driven. They don't sound strained, just harsh. I am pleasantly surprised that at unity gain, the hiss is barely noticeable at 15ft in a quiet room. They look sharp the knobs feel expensive and the connections are smooth with good engagement (if that matters to anyone else). They feel well built. This is my first foray into 'pro audio' speakers, and i like where this is going. These will not give the sound quality of my Line sources and monoblock amps, but that is expected.

          Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

          I previously owned the Alto TS112s. I traded them in towards the new Alto TS215s when they came out. I loved the TS215s so much, that I also purchased a pair of the Alto TS212s. These speakers are AWESOME. Love that they have 5 handles. They weigh 28.5 lbs, and they pack plenty of punch. They can handle any size event that more expensive speakers can handle as well. I handle 200 guest weddings with a pair of these and a Alto TS212S Sub no problem. The sound quality is phenomenal for the price range. I'll include a video of my speaker shoot out between this speaker and a Yamaha DBR10 so you can hear how they sound! Just Buy these! Alto TS speakers hands down are the best bang for buck speaker series on the market! I'm a mobile DJ and totally recommend these speakers For the price, buy 4 of them so you have a whole back up pair (If you are a mobile DJ or Band!)

            Comments about Alto Truesonic TS212 12" 2-Way Powered Speaker:

            Just got these as well as a pair of the 15" version. I am SUPER impressed with the sound quality and power that these have and at a fraction of the cost of other brands. I A-Bd these with most other offerings and these had the best sound. These can be used as mains as well as monitors! Even without a sub, these 12" models as well as the 15" models have nice low end to them...I like to engage the contour switch on the back for really nice Punch and Presence!

                I bought this to use with my Kemper Profiling Amp. It has exceeded my expectations. Crystal clear sound, plenty of volume, lightweight, and easy to set up and use. As others have pointed out, it has lots of bass on tap; but that's easily tuned with the EQs available in the Kemper, if you so desire. (I've found that just getting the speaker up off the ground made all the difference for me. YMMV.)

                Bottom line: if you're a Kemper user and you're looking at this speaker, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I love mine.

                  I bought some of these to have for the sound company for light rentals. Seem to work ok for that. However I decided to try them out on monitors....feedback prone big time. I had to make some large cuts way up high, way more than I normally do to keep them from squealing which concerns me if you are not an experienced sound guy on ID'ing free's and making cuts.

                  Great price, great speaker depending on use, but just a caution and observation.
